Supporting Entrepreneurs Worldwide Through Kiva
Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. They leverage the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, allowing individuals to lend money to help create opportunity around the world.
When we first heard about Kiva, we were instantly excited. Our passion has always been helping people realize their dreams, and this seemed like a great way to do that in parts of the world where help is most needed. So now for every new client we take on, we lend money to someone in a developing country who is trying to create opportunity for themselves.
We will also be profiling the people we select on Kiva on our blog, along with other local entrepreneurs and nonprofits who we think deserve attention for the work they are doing. If you or someone you know has a compelling story of how they are contributing to their city, country, or the world, please let us know and we will share your story.
